Strawberry Cocktail Ideas

We have made this with a few alternative ingredients. Sometimes we just didn’t have everything on hand, other times, we just wanted to switch it up a bit.

Sweetener Options. Swap out the Triple Sec for Grand Marnier.

Strawberry Syrup. Make your own sweet strawberry syrup or use store purchased. Or just muddle some strawberries in the bottom of the glass before adding the other ingredients. Tip. If you prefer to make your own keep reading, we have that recipe here too. If you prefer to use a store-bought strawberry syrup, there are a number available on the market. The best strawberry syrup that we have tried is Torani Strawberry Syrup.

Lime Juice. We prefer fresh lime; however, we have used bottled lime when we don’t have fresh. I think the lime flavor is delicious in this recipe. Lemon juice works well too.

Bubbly. We have used lemon-lime citrus soda, club soda, bubbly champagne, and a light flavored wine for this drink recipe.

Garnish Ideas. There are so many ways to dress up this pretty drink. Here are a few ideas to help you get started, lime slice, lemon slice, orange slice, strawberry slice, maraschino cherry, or fresh herbs such as a few mint leaves. Normally, I will slice a lime wheel in half, then make another little slice in the middle of the fruit side so it can be placed on the rim of the glass. Another way to add the fruit and herb garnish is to use a toothpick to hold the garnish together. Just place on top of the glass.
